This venue is AMAZING. We got married on the ballroom side and our ceremony was on the deck overlooking the water. We had phenomenal weather which made for a picture perfect ceremony. The venue is simply gorgeous no matter whether you decide for the ballroom side or the tent side. The staff is beyond compare. I don't think we would have been happy getting married anywhere else. Other venues we looked at were ok, but once we saw the view we would be having, we knew Celebrations was the only choice. We loved that everything was included. We did not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner or find a caterer/bakery. It was effortless and stress free. We loved our consultations and deciding on how we wanted the tables set. There are endless patterns, colors, cloth textures, folded napkin styles, flatware, and more, to choose from. They take care of it all. Not to mention, there are a variety of beautiful centerpieces to choose from as well. I was honestly worried that we needed to "jazz up" the centerpieces but they were beautiful as it. Celebrations really knows what they are doing. They are also super flexible. There were modifications to the guest count AFTER the final headcount was due and we were accommodated. Cindy and Eileen were beyond amazing to work with. Both so friendly and always willing to help. The waitstaff was off the charts spectacular. They were very attentive and polite. They all had a smile on their faces. Some of our guests had been to weddings at Celebrations before and they left our wedding saying it was better than when they had been previously! I can not say enough good things about Celebrations by the Bay. The food was amazing, all the guests left every well fed! With (most) everything taken care of by Celebrations, the wedding planning process was very stress free and easy!

A blast experience!
Since the moment we got in touch with Olivia, she was always being very kind and attentive with us, always making sure we were understanding each point and giving her best to make our day as much perfect as it could be. Olivia and all the team who worked in our special day did a great job. Our guests enjoyed the food, the decorations, the hospitality and specially the drinks, so did we - Specially Messi, the waitress who was always serving us (groom and bride). She was the sweetest one and we didn’t spend even one minute without drinks! Lastly, what a place! We were really luckily to find it. We highly recommend Celebrations at the Bay just as the whole team. Thanks for making our day so special!

Marissa and the entire staff at celebrations at the bay are amazing! Our wedding was flawless and they tended to our every need and want. I cannot say enough about how great Marissa was as my day of coordinator. She made me feel at ease and I really was able to enjoy our wedding day. The decor was exactly as I imagined. The food was delicious and she even helped to make sure my guests were able to use a cotton candy machine that I provided. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure everyone had a great time. I highly recommend celebrations at the bay, you will be so happy on your big day!
